I had a co-worker make a couple of requests from me.  All she said was use blue, purple, black...go!  She said the same thing for the rainbow hat...I like having room to do whatever I want.  So with the black, purple, and blue hat, I put popcorn stitches where the blue stripes were and made the pom poms all multi colored...then the rainbow hat...i just couldn't think of anything super fabulous...so I think it came out a little generic...but she still liked them, so the purpose was served...any comments welcome!

I free handed them.  I've made so many hats, that I've learned to eye my work and adjust as I go along.  I've  had to start over a few times before, but it's a learning experience each time.  It's just a basic beanie with earflaps and poms added to it.  Very simple.

Just to give more information on how these came out...with form fitting hats, I usually do 6-8 rows of increases depending on how big the head of person wearing it is.  Then I make it long enough to cover ears or wherever they want it to hit on thier head.  then the earflaps I crochet directly onto the hat after trying it on and making sure they'll hit the ears.  the earflaps are simply rectangles that decrease all the way down til they are pointed.  single crochet around the even the bottom of hat, and bam!

for the ties, just pull 3 strands of yarn through the single crochet at the bottom of earflaps, and braid till the bottom...or you can use 6 or 9 strands for bigger thicker braids....hope this helps.
